The School:

St Francis’ Catholic Primary in Maryland is in its second year working with Enabling Enterprise. Previously, students have been busy developing a set of eight essential Enterprise Skills by solving the case of the Sugar Snatcher in their ‘Crime Scene’ Challenge Day. Today’s challenge was a fantastic opportunity for students from across Year 1 to Year 6 to put those same 8 skills to the test, with a particular focus on teamwork and creativity.

The Challenge: Operation Moonbase

Over the course of the day, students used their Working in a Team skills to establish a new society on a distant moon called Utopia. A series of challenges particularly stretched the teams on their Problem Solving, Using Imagination and Listening Carefully. Students needed to select a crew to support their new human colony on their mission. The would-be astronauts then designed a new species of animal to benefit society before finally creating a 3-D model of their own dream city. The day culminated in a series of persuasive pitches at the ‘Intergalactic Trade Fair’ which gave each team the opportunity to show off their fantastic ideas.

What they said:

  • “The students worked together with such maturity and their presentations were absolutely outstanding!” – Teacher
  • “I’ve certainly seen a huge improvement in their teamwork and communication throughout the day.” – Teacher
  • “My team worked together to create an amazing city in Utopia – I couldn’t have done it without them!” – Student
  • “Sometimes I can be quite shy, but my team helped me to get up and do a presentation. I feel proud!” – Student

Thanks to everyone for such a great Challenge Day!
